This is a very good movie in my opinion. This film should be one of the best movies out there. The reason I like this movie is mainly because of Emma Watson. She is a great actor and she has been acting sense she was in the movie Harry Potter. This film brings happiness and I hope others can find it to.💗 Great movie! 5 star rating — ejlipska

SEE THE 1991 VERSION
★★★★
The original cartoon Beauty and Beast (1991) was so much better. Emma Watson was great as Hermione Granger, but as Belle, she came off standoffish, and snobbish. She and Dan Stevens just did not make magic on screen, and lacked chemistry. Also, this is not a true family movie, Disney has to throw in some perversion, since a few of the movie makers, cannot stop their sick deviant selves from trying to contaminate young impressionable minds. — Prophet Amos

The kids enjoyed it.
★★★★★
Not bad. Expectedly heavy on the CGI. The PC Hollywood whitewash can be a little annoying for adults. It's become a very diverse little french town! :) But the kids won't notice that. The acting? Well, some eggs would have been nice with all that ham. — IsItMyEyes?

Good movie ☺️☺️☺️

Beauty&Beast
★★★★★
This enjoyable tale was memorizing with the music, choreography, artistic setups, makeup, props, etc. The Town scenes were quaint and beautiful. The sharp contrast from greenery, warm weather to frigid, cold, dark castle was excellent. The actors and actresses were lovely and fit their part very well. Thank you for making this movie one that fits the Disney profile as an excellent family movie! — 1!£

Underwhelming
★★★★★
I liked a lot of this movie. What didn't work for me was Belle's acting seemed like she was trying hard not to express very much. It just wasn't very believable because it felt like she held back a lot. And her voice was very limited ability-wise. She couldn't do much with it, and it was insanely auto-tuned. Her voice was so processed, it was extremely distracting. Very amateurish singing. I was disappointed by the casting of Belle. — Rosty123456789

I'm probably not alone is saying the original is still a better film than this production. The new songs add nothing as they are entirely forgettable. — JaegerBob

A Classic Done Right
★★★★★
I went into this wanting to hate it, even though I'm a sincere fan of Emma Watson and even moreso of Emma Thompson, Ian McKellan, Ewan McGregor, and on and on. But I grew up with the Disney Classics and Beauty and the Beast was a favorite of mine. We've all heard the line about how Walt Diney vowed he'd never do sequels, and to be sure, not many of the ones Disney has done came out anywhere near decent or close to the original, so I cringed when I heard about the remake. And all of that being said, I was enchanted. This was an excellent execution, with many flashbacks to my favorite parts of the Disney original, but live and there was just this sense of 'more' to it all. I thought it utterly poignant to bring Celine Dion back to sing during the credits, loving that further connection so many of us would recognize from growing up during the 90's. All in all, I had to give this 5 stars and while I truly hope and believe that Disney should start investigating new, original stoylines that have not been made into large scale productions, like The Firebird, Baba Yaga, The Nightingale, I very much enjoyed this new adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. — College Chic

Best movie ever

I have watched this movie like three times then I went and bought it and have watched it 5 more times. I know almost every song all the way through and most the words. Love it so much. — Emma Ttacy

Amazing movie
★★★★★
It's such an amazing movie I would totally reccomend it. I waited for this movie for a really long time and now I can't stop watching it. — I don't really care you know

Could have been amazing, but. . .
★★★★★
The cast threw EVERYTHING off about a mile: Belle: 4/10 Emma Watson's singing is awful and acting is bad. Beast: 8/10 Dan Stevens' singing was good, acting rather cringey Lumiere: 10/10 Ewan McGregors's singing/acting was superb! Cogsworth: 9/10 Ian Mckellan did good! But he was so OLD Mrs. Potts: 2/10 Emma Thompson did not impress with singing or acting Chip: 8/10 the kid who played Chip was very young. I wasn't partial to his acting, but for a little guy he did well. Madame DaLagrandeBouche: 10/10 her singing was phenomanal Maestro: 10/10 another whole performance from Stanley Tucci. His voice will suprise you Babette: 8/10 pretty good Gaston: 10/10 the movie is worth seeing just to watch Luke Evans as Gaston. Just do it; you will not regret. Lafou: 9/10 Josh Gad was funny, but his charcter was, well. . . you probaly know what I'm talking about. If not, good for you. Maurice: 10/10 Kevin Kline satisfied *You may have noticed i was most critical on the singing. Well, I have a trained ear, so. . . — AllTheLadiesLuvLeo

Nothing left to say Beauty and the Beast
★★★★★
This movie is really amazing I loved every second of it it really touched my heart and the music was really special — adrian the unicorn boy

So... boring. NOTHING like the trailer
★★★★
I kept waiting for it to get good. Never did. Emma Watson was absolutely the worst casting. She just seemed so lifeless, dark circles around her eyes, no energy, just no spark, no charm, nothing to make you believe. My wife and I were completely dumbfounded.. The trailer though is sensational. — hemispheres8

They changed the story!!!
★★★★★
It was a beatiful film but they totally changed the story. The original version was so much better. Not sure why they did that. — Bismarckan

BEST MOVIE EVER!!!
★★★★★
Completely obsessed with it!! I love all the actors!!! Luke Evans looks exactly like cartoon gaston😂 I love it. — Livliv54

Spectacular movie
★★★★★
Don't understand why so many people are putting 1 stars. The movie was excellent and the acting was great! Emma Watson did use a little bit too much of autotune, but other than that it was great tbh — Uuiuppppp

No improvement over the original
★★★★★
Is this a horrible film? No--it is okay. Basically they added live-action to beloved source material and there you have it. One expects high budget cinematography and high production values and check check the movie fulfills Disney's bullet points. The acting is okay, I think it was intentional to aim toward a cartoon style of acting, but my reaction was that I found it fake and difficult to suspend unbelief. I loved Branaugh's Cinderella which played the characters straight up as if it were a real period drama. I don't think this rendition of Beauty and the Beast offers an ounce of value over the original product. It is basically a nostalgia fest for parents who loved the original that can now take their daughters to the 2017 version and feel the recycled magic one more time. — super1976

I Loved This Film
★★★★★
I don't even like musicals . So glad I rented this one. Made me feel Happy for the first time in a while. — 53 julimar

Just one thing that is confusing!
★★★★★
I love the movie so I give it a five. People say it is magic that it went magically from summer to spring but people say It was not magic. I am so confused! Help! — w1hatch

Amazing!
★★★★★
This movie is so good, especially for the fact that Emma Watson is the lead role! I mean, she always gets the magical bookworms! I am mostly referring to Hermione Granger! As a Potterhead, it's just Magical! — Shopkinsfan 2007

Excruciating
★★★★
If I hadn't spent the $5 to rent it, I would have turned it off. I feel like I've been gargling over processed, soulless Broadway. Couldn't stand the cartoon, and this was absolutely no improvement. I agree Belle- Beast, please grow the fur back... you were more attractive then. — NobodyUnoe

A Good Retelling!
★★★★
While it's true that there are flaws (some of which are enough to lower the immersion into this fantasy-France), the splendid parts are more than enough to make up for them. It has aspects that I found to be better than they were in the original animated film, the new additions to the score being one of them. It's a film that's been done well enough to allow it to stand on its own feet alongside the original. Overall, I found it to be wonderful and will absolutely count it as one of my favorite live action remakes made thus far. — lauraxlove

★★★★★
We loved it “A tale as old as time I took my daughter to see this classic It's one of her all time favorite since she was a toddler We laughed, cried and mad memories that will last a lifetime. — 😏👏🎀

Love the Improvement
★★★★★
I love how this newer version not only gives real life perspective and more songs to this remarkable Disney film, but it also patches up plot holes and confusions by tweaking and adding minor things. As a child I was not as fond with this movie as I was with other Disney movies, but now this has made a three on my top ten favorite Disney movies list. — Ajcoolse

Good movie
★★★★
Its a nice movie worth the rent. Has the Disney tonality and all key characters one knows from the cartoon play out nicely. Good picks in terms of actors and amzing cgi. — Variable01

SO GOOD!
★★★★★
Beauty and the Beast is my all time favorite movie since it came out. The live animation is out standing. This movie had me in tears by the end. Dan Stevens, who played the beast was the perfect actor for this part. My new favorite song is "Evermore", which he sang towards the end . Belle has been my favorite Disney princess growing up so naturally, I was super excited for it to come out in theaters. I was literally counting down the days until Beauty and the Beast came out on dvd and blue ray. All of my friends think I am crazy because I am OBSESSED with beauty and the beast. I totally recommend this movie. Emma Watson is the perfect actor for the roll of Bell. Seeing her in all of the Harry Potter movies and then seeing her singing in this was kind of weird. She has a ok voice but they made it sound really good for the part with auto tune. Buy this movie and I promise, you won't regret it. — Toad🐸🐸

Terrible movie
★★★★
The cast was done poorly besides one or two. Beauty was not beautiful like everyone imagined Bell to be. I didn't fancy this movie what so ever. Thank goodness I did not buy this movie . — I woulsnt buy this movie

Well done!
★★★★★
This movie had some big shoes to fill. And it did it beautifully. Emma Watson is amazing in everything she does. A perfect Belle; no one could have done that role better or more believable. The cast was full of big name performers, which doesn't always make for a good movie. But they pulled it off in this one! Bravo! — MacMan9876

Delightful!!!
★★★★★
After hearing, seeing both on film and live, I find this live-action version truly delightful. Those of us who love the Arts can appreciate its beauty, charm and professionalism. The actors, elaborate scenes, phenomenal photography, wonderful voices leave you wanting more. Take a break from the stresses of life and relax and watch this version of The Beauty and The Beast. — Paulyeenn
